Take survey to help Cooperative Extension help you

Cooperative Extension in Rowan County is different in its educational efforts and programming outreach.
Unlike other educational institutions and systems that feature standard statewide programs, Cooperative Extension operations in each county can tailor educational programming efforts as determined by citizens to meet their needs.
What is important in New Hanover County or Halifax County may not be an important issue in Rowan County. The staff determines programming needs and efforts based on advisory committees, focus groups and surveys.
Cooperative Extension is in the process of gathering information to make these critical programming decisions for 2012. Your input is needed for Cooperative Extension in Rowan County to formulate viable programs. Information from a brief, yet important online survey will determine the needs of the community and help Cooperative Extension determine educational programs that are of benefit to its citizens.
Please go to this survey link http://harvest.cals.ncsu.edu/surveybuilder/form.cfm?testid=13804 and complete this survey.
If you do not have a computer, you can find the survey at several locations around the county.
Hard copies are also available at the Cooperative Extension Office, 2727-A Old Concord Road in Salisbury, the three branches of Rowan Public Library, headquarters, East and South and at the Salisbury Post. Your honest feedback is greatly appreciated and the information is completely anonymous.
